The emotional rollercoaster of Senior Day took a number of turns on Saturday afternoon at Kaplan Arena, going from excitement to gut-wrenching to jubilation.

After Charleston’s Grant Riller banked in a 35-footer to send the game to overtime, the William & Mary men’s basketball team answered the bell in the extra session to pull out a thrilling 114-104 victory.
